Re: Somebody please give me a reality check

My boyfriend and I were together for 14 months. We broke up, but on the terms of distance. We are still best friends, but when we see each other we pretty much act like we we're a couple because it's not like we *wanted* to break up...it just wasn't working out. So maybe because of the situation it is different, but I am also friends with my other ex, and we were together for 6 months. That took time, though. We were friends for a little bit after the break up, and then he started to resent me. Called me a whore, said I ruined him, that kind of thing. We didn't talk for a while but he came back and I forgave him. We still talk frequently and he is now in a new relationship.
In short, yes, I think it is possible to remain friends with an ex, although the circumstances and time frames of when it happens may differ.
